I have been meaning to ask ,which railroad was in Darius Rucker's Wagon Wheel video? The engines looked like the ex BNSF B40-8W 500 class, with motion sickness inducing trucks.

Hey! I thought Uncle Si was good in it.

Yes, they are former BNSF/ATSF B40-8W units owned by the Nashville and Eastern.

Good tune, and a nice video with the Robertson clan, but I wish the producers would stop with the "just amble down the right-of-way with yer geetar" stuff.

Operation Lifesaver has been fighting that battle for awhile, and I hope some kid doesn't get smacked by a train some day while imitating something they saw in a music video or on an album cover. :(

I agree with the part about him walking on the tracks. No future in it. That's a fact, Jack!
